Harborough

 DSCF4437

I saw this modified sign at Market Harborough. I don’t know whether or not this is genuine, but I think if it is genuine CRT should make an effort to get proper signs made.

I suppose I could understand the selling of 48 hour moorings out of season  but why before the season has ended?

Market Harborough is a very popular location in season and is one of the only places where you can moor on a water point for two days, there being nearly as many water points as there are bollards.

Hello Maffi, If this refers to the first 3 moorings as you approach the basin, these have always been permanent moorings. For some unique reason they have always described them as "Levy Paid" as opposed to "Permanent Moorings" as marked elsewhere in the country. It looks like the original signs which were there for years have recently been upgraded but incorrectly. I say recently, earlier this year when we were there, the original signs were still there.

Another unique feature in that area is how they signpost winding holes as you approach them.

Yes we have noticed that two boats seem to be permanently moored on the end as you approach MH. As you say there should be proper signage there. Also there seems to be a boat permanently moored outside the Boathouse in Braunston. Are these all C&RT moorings?

Thank you for clearing that up Keith, but I still think CRT should get their finger out and put up proper signs. Felt tip is not acceptable.

Next time we meet up remind me to tell you about matters concerning the Leicester Line, which we discovered whilst doing the winter coal run in that area, too complex to discuss clearly here, you will find it interesting and should clear a few matters up for you. Certainly looks like you are enjoying your trip this year.
